Makes sense to me. Furbank is fantastic but beyond that we only really have Ace who although he is not bad, he is 30 and already not as good IMO. If we had harry in competition then we would be well covered for the future.
It will be good to have cover for 15 again. Whilst Furbank has been electric this season, he has had to have games off with HIA protorcols. As good as Ace has been, an in form Harry fighting for a spot with an in form Furbank will be great for the side.
I know we've seen Furbank cover 10, but if Harry out performs Furbank and nails down the 15 spot, can Furbank cover elsewhere? 13? Possibly wing? Possibly look at covering 9 duties?
I'm glad to see Harry back, but I don't get all the Harry Vs George business. It's so exciting to see two young players in competition for a starting spot.
Tuala is 30(1?) and I don't know how long he has on his current contract. Will it be renewed? Does it need to be? Perhaps he's our updated James Wilson?
So with the style of rotation Boyd plays, two almost equal players in one position must be good for everyone?
3-12 Gloucester just before the break and Gloucester having lot more of the pressure overall. Not a particularly invigorating match or signs of anyone shining out above the rest including Harry so far. Our injury list taking its toll at 1st team level and Wandies level.
